TTU is informing high school students about a profession in health care

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - If you are a high school student and are contemplating what to do with your future, the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine wants to inform you about health care professions.

The SOM Office of Admissions will host the Grand Kick Off of the Early Dedication to Medical Education or EDME. The event will take place at 6:30 p.m. October 5th at the TTUHSC Academic Classroom Building lobby located at 3601 Fourth St.

Interim Assistant Dean of Admissions Kim Peck, M.D., said EDME is an opportunity for high school students to explore the medical profession and see if they have interest in pursuing a career in the field.

"We are hoping to encourage high school students interested in a career in medicine by informing them about the processes involved during high school and college to prepare for such a career," Peck said. "Many students never have been exposed to the field and this is a great opportunity to learn more about it."

Currently Lubbock ISD, Frenship ISD, Shallowater ISD, Anton ISD, Meadow ISD, Ropes ISD, Idalou ISD and Trinity Schools have partnered with the SOM's EDME program.

Students will hear various presentations about what highlights and activities will be available to them during the coming semester, as well as experience a fun environment with pizza and door prizes. Parents, teachers, counselors, principals and parents are encouraged to attend.

"We hope to let them know that From Here it's Possible," Peck said.

For more information, contact the TTUHSC SOM Office of Admissions, at (806) 743-2297 or email erin.peck@ttuhsc.edu.
